In the video below, Motley Fool energy analysts Taylor Muckerman and Joel South discuss a few midstream companies that are currently facing issues. These problems involve some of the largest pipelines in the world. Two of the companies are Enbridge and TransCanada . Meanwhile, Williams and Chesapeake Energy  both have reached deals with Access Midstream Partners that should prove beneficial to all parties.

With regards to Chesapeake Energy, the company has seen its share price depreciate severely due to a range of issues, including its spiraling debt picture. This $2.16 billion deal should be a giant step to help address its looming solvency problem.
